Laser Cladding Metal

Laser cladding, also known as laser deposition, is a process used for applying one material to the surface of another.

Cladding is achieved by feeding a stream of a suitable powder into a focused laser beam as it is scanned across a metal surface, leaving behind a deposited coating.

Laser cladding provides:

  • precise placement of the cladding material.
  • a wide choice of different materials that can be deposited
  • deposits that are fully fused to the metal surface.
  • a narrow heat affected zone (HAZ).
  • limited distortion of the substrate.
  • easy automation and integration into CAD/CAM and CNC production.
